"Our bodies want contact with plants, animals, rolling terrain and open sky. We need to smell the land, touch the dirt with our bare feet, feel the textures of plants, see the movement of the animals, and feel the wind on our faces. In a sense, we need to be massaged by the natural world. Our bodies crave this contact."
- Frank Forencich Exuberant Animal
